Famous transfer sites such as The Pirate Bay, are increasingly oppressed by the policies of copyright and software pirates are heading quickly now to file-hosting websites. Sites such as RapidShare, Megaupload and Hotfile allow anonymous users to load large files and crack free software sites. Hyperlinks by software pirates can then be distributed through websites, instant messaging and social media sites like Twitter, said Vic DeMarines, vice president of product to company security VI Labs. Although sites such as RapidShare allow free downloads, they get money by charging those who do a massive download via premium subscriptions. Trade pirated digital goods, be it movies, music, e-books or software, is leading the popularity and business model of companies such as RapidShare. The site said, earlier this year for The New York Times, that he hosted at the time 10 petabytes of data to 3 million downloads.
